Thor's Day

Happy birthday to voldsom!

Haven't taken the pills yet; will after I take Miss Kid to the bus stop. Pain levels are better this morning. Started to ease up last night.

Further description of the agita is in comments to the post. Quick note: It's not an issue of forgetting to bring books home; when she has to, she does. (She sometimes forgets her flute - but as long as it's in her locker and not sitting out in a hallway, I can live with that.)

I printed out the FlyLady Student Control Journal for her, and she's delighted with it, and she had a mini-blast getting organized this morning. Let's hope it sticks! Thanks for the input, everyone.

Daily Science
Mirror neurons continue to light up neuroscientists' imaginations, as several new studies show that the nerve cells respond to more than just visual stimuli.

In multiple reports published in the Sept. 19 issue of Current Biology, neuroscientists provide evidence that mirror neurons are multimodal—they are activated by not just by watching actions, but also by hearing and reading about them.

Daily BPAL
Testing frimps first so I have more stuff to trade nycorson this weekend. :)

Hymn: A paean to true holiness, spiritual purity, and sacred enlightenment. Based on an incense blend sacred to the Virgin Mary: perfect rose absolute and Palestinian Lily of the Valley with olibanum, labdanum, frankincense and myrrh.

In bottle: Rose, but not quite as chemical as usual. I'll try it.

On me: Hm! Yeah, it doesn't have the chemical feel. Roses and lilies are all I'm getting. This is a nice, proper garden. It is a nice smell, but it is not remotely a me smell.

Manila: A tropical, humid, lush scent, with a faint echo of Pacific breezes, jungle blossoms, and deep wet woods. Sampaguita blossoms, banana leaf, palm, and narra.

In bottle: Something rich and sweet - the blossoms, no doubt.

On me: I swear there's something tropical-fruitish in there. I don't know what narra is, so maybe that's what I'm smelling? This really does evoke the sense of place in the description.

Want to test more, but also want to space them out! *laugh*

Hope everyone has a great day. :)

Dear hughcasey,

I sent in my bio and picked my panels. Stop pokin' me. :P


Dear world at large,

I will be at PhilCon this November, hopefully holding forth on comics, the use of ballads in fantasy, and, *ahem*, alternative lifestyles. Come see me! I'm even going to dress up for the dance.


Dear website I'm trying to work with,

Stop sucking.

No love,

Dear girl who had that interesting dream about me and e-mailed me about it,

We should talk about that. *blush*

*shy wave*,

Dear weather,

Thank you for being gorgeous today. That walk really helped.
